Though refusing the order puts them at risk of termination, dozens of air marshals argue that abandoning their current assignments will leave American fliers more vulnerable to threats over the busy holiday travel season.

...earlier this month, the Biden administration announced air marshals, considered federal law enforcement agents within the Transportation Security Administration, would face mandatory deployments as the shortage of Border Patrol agents worsens.

...David Londo, president of the Air Marshal National Council, said, "Rank and file air marshals are going to refuse to deploy and risk termination," as the Biden administration plan would strip 99% of commercial airline flights from federal protection...."You’re almost going to have a mutiny of a federal agency, which is unheard of..."Morale is so destroyed from this," Londo said. "I’ve never seen anything like this."


"Feckless dementia-ridden piece of crap!"

    This is what happens when leadership doesn't understand costs and specialties. And you take a look at how far down we are on USBP agents. No one wants the job just to get sht on. This is like asking a Special Forces guy to guard a gate. You pay over a million dollars to train them and use them to check IDs. They may not have the linguistic skills a USBP agent has, but they're trying to glean information to make a decision they know little about. It just doesn't make sense.

    The air marshals are part of the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), a DHS subagency, and ride on U.S. airlines to guard against security threats.


    A lawyer for the air marshal group wrote in a Nov. 4 letter to the agency that the deployments are illegal because they involve duties outside the scope of the job. While DHS does not release the number of marshals, LaBosco said there were fewer than 3,000.


    LaBosco said the deployments would hurt U.S. aviation security during the holiday travel season and force marshals to take on unrelated duties at the border, including watching migrant children.

    A DHS spokesperson defended the deployments, saying that marshals have had previous assignments to assist hurricane relief and that some were temporarily deployed to the border in 2019. U.S. flights would still be protected, the spokesperson said.

    The Washington Examiner first reported the marshals' plan.

    The tensions come as the Biden administration is preparing for the possible end of a COVID-era border order, known as Title 42, which allows U.S. authorities to rapidly expel migrants to Mexico or other countries without the chance to seek asylum.

    Okay? I understand you cited reuters, but...???????

    Only 1% of aircraft in the US have Air Marshals are on them at this time.

    "The tensions come as the Biden administration is preparing for the possible end of a COVID-era border order, known as Title 42, which allows U.S. authorities to rapidly expel migrants to Mexico or other countries without the chance to seek asylum."

    pedojoe has destroyed everything Trump put on the border. They knew Title 42 was coming to an end several months ago, as much as they hated it. They have done nothing to correct the issue. Until last week, it was always, "The border is secure." Which everyone with a brain knew was a lie. In the past year, fentanyl has killed twice as many as VietNam did. The number of children used as sex slaves has skyrocketed.

    For many of the liberals (e.g. curt), the over-riding issue is getting people into the US regardless of the crimes involved. Numerous times, we've found 3 and 4 year olds wandering the desert. They are dehydrated, hungry, and obviously very scared. Do you think a parent would leave them? I'm thinking not. I'm thinking the cayotes leave them as excess baggage, or the parents are dead. Most of the girls-young women talk about being raped numerous times after the crossing into the US by the cayotes.

    From 2019:

    TSA to deploy hundreds, including air marshals, to border

    Washington(CNN)The Transportation Security Administration plans to send hundreds of officials to help with efforts to deal with migrant inflows on the southern border just as the busy summer travel season begins, according to an internal email obtained by CNN.

    The task of the TSA workers, which a source said will include air marshals, will be to assist temporarily with immigration duties. TSA acknowledged in an internal email the "immediate need" comes with the acceptance of "some risk" of depleted resources in aviation security.

    TSA plans for the deployments to involve up to 175 law enforcement officials and as many as "400 people from Security Ops," according to two sources and the email. At least initially, the efforts will not involve uniformed airport screeners, according to the email, which says that some parts of TSA would be asked to contribute "around 10%" of its workforce.

    "There is now immediate need for more help from TSA at the SW border," a senior TSA official, Gary Renfrow, wrote in the email to agency regional management. "TSA has committed to support with 400 people from Security Ops" who will be deployed in waves "similar to support for past hurricanes."

    We also understand that we are accepting some risk as we enter a very busy summer," Renfrow wrote, calling this effort an "additional challenge."

    The initial law enforcement teams will be drawn from six cities, according to a source familiar with the plans.

    The spokesman for the Department of Homeland Security referred questions to TSA. After this story was published, TSA spokeswoman Jenny Burke said in a statement: "TSA, like all DHS components, is supporting the DHS effort to address the humanitarian and security crisis at the southwest border. TSA is in the process of soliciting volunteers to support this effort while minimizing operational impact."

    While airport checkpoint screening may be the most visible part of TSA, Juliette Kayyem, a former DHS official who is a CNN analyst, noted these deployments would draw employees from important behind-the-scenes security work. "That's sweeping airports, that is monitoring activity on the inside and outside of the security line, they're supporting local and state law enforcement," she said.

    The assignment comes as the number of illegal border crossings is spiking, with apprehensions at a 10-year high. Some 4,300 active duty and National Guard troops are currently assisting on the border, the acting defense secretary said recently, and Customs and Border Protection shifted 750 of its own officers to assignments with Border Patrol last month. Before her ouster as Homeland Security secretary last month, Kirstjen Nielsen asked for volunteers within the ranks of DHS employees, including TSA, "to assist CBP and ICE in responding to the emergency at the southern border."

    LOL!!!!!!!!!

    So, Donna. Am I reading you right? You now support Trump’s border policy?


  7. by Donna on December 3, 2022 11:04 am

    I don't have a problem with the policy we're discussing.


  8. by HatetheSwamp on December 3, 2022 11:08 am

    I think that the reason there's a possible mutiny against "that feckless dementia-ridden piece of crap" is that his leadership inspires distrust.


  9. by Donna on December 3, 2022 11:12 am

    I think it's more likely that the air marshalls who are whining are MAGAs.
